What is a pipe guide?

A pipe guide can be categorized into two types. The first is as a shoe support attached directly to the pipe with external components which direct the pipe during the thermal deflection cycle. The second type of guide surrounds the pipe and is attached to stationary structures, allowing the pipe to move.
